Years ago, I read a book on marriage and the author had had three divorces (I learned this after the fact). I'm sorry but if you have been married multiple times (due to divorce not death), why then do you feel you should write a book on improving your marriage?
Since I've started reviewing books, I've been asked to review books about marriage by authors who have been married less than five years. I have owned my mini van longer than some authors of marital advice books have been married. And as someone who has been married for almost 25 years, I am very critical, almost too critical, of those books.
When I decided to review this book, I researched the authors and found out they've been married for over 23 years so I decided to proceed with this review.
Here are some tidbits from this book:
pg 23 - "It felt like we could talk forever!" As soon as I read that, I thought back to feeling that same way! LOL! We can go hours just sitting by each other while I'm reading and he is watching tv. But that's ok. We've learned that we can still pursue our hobbies and still be together at the same time.
pg. 53 - "All Couples fight" I am so glad the author said this. Over the year, I've known couples who say they've never had a single argument, EVER! And unfortunately things have been less than ideal for them.
I really appreciate how the author describes his wife has his best friend. That is how my husband and I refer to each other. We are each others best friends. And I appreciate that he adds how important Date Nights are. For years my husband felt that our "date nights" ended when we had children.Read more ›
We know that the divorce rate is high regardless of whether you consider yourself a Christian or not. Craig and Amy believe that you can beat the odds if you will apply the five things they outline in their book. The five commitments they list are simply in words, but difficult in putting into action day by day.
My wife has not read the book. I am sure I will pass it along to her soon. I hope that she can already begin to see a difference in me and my commitment to her. Even if she does not see it, the things I have already began to put in place have been enough for me. As hard as it is to believe, I enjoy my marriage more now than I did two weeks ago.
If you have five hours or so on a weekend, give this book a read. It does not take long to make it through the pages. You could easily finish it in one sitting if you have that much time. However, do not feel pressed to rush through it. Instead, read what the authors have to say and consider your own marriage or what you want in your future marriage. You will be glad you did.
I would rate this book four out of five stars. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

Hopes to be married
The five steps to securing a faith-based marriage, involving anger and intimacy, purity and perseverance (among other things) is rock-solid. I love Craig's casual-yet-direct writing style (so much like his preaching style, which can be viewed at lifechurch.tv), and his wife's on-point comments in each chapter, make this one I'll read again, and share with my wife and close friends.
Our lives are very busy, as my husband is also a young pastor! We need to put aside time for each other to just pray or talk or just have dinner together, and from reading this book I realize where I have lacked in being the best wife I can be! I think I've just been thinking my husband is a pastor, he's a Christian and I'm sure he prays for his burdens and needs, and I do pray for him, but I haven't been strongly like I should for him in his everyday life!
Thank you Craig and Amy for sharing things you practice that I can integrate into my own married life to help my husband and I grow closer to God together as one, and nit two separate people!!
